for the assault that killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. elise, you just interviewed secretary clinton. what exactly did she tell you? >> reporter: well, isha, you know there's been so much political back and forth in washington over who was responsible for the attack that killed ambassador chris stevens and three other americans and even last week in the vice presidential debate, when asked about those additional requests for security that were denied, the vice president said we didn't know anything about that, and secretary clinton when i asked her about that, she said listen, this is a state department functn. the state department finds the embassy security for embassies and consulates around the world and that's my state department. i have 60,000 employees and i take responsibility, isha. i think she was trying to take a little bit of the heat off the white house at this time when an election is coming up and also trying to remind people that hey, four americans died, including an ambassador, and we need to stop this blame game. she said she doesn't want any more
. it was a terrorist attack. u.s. ambassador chris stevens, three other americans were killed. security at the time of the attack was modest at best. the white house has come under attack for not providing better protection. just a short time ago this evening, secretary of state clinton traveling in peru, said the buck stops with her and she takes the blame for the assault. >> i take responsibility. i'm in charge of the state department. 60,000 plus people all over the world, 275 posts. the president and the vice president certainly wouldn't be knowledgeable about specific decision that are made by security professionals. they're the ones who weigh all of the threats and the risks and the needs and make a considered decision. >> her statement, of course comes just hours before the second presidential debate. first i want to bring in cnn's foreign affairs reporter elise lav it who had the interview. this is the first time that secretary clinton talked about that night in depth, what else did she tell you? >> you're right. the first time she talked about the attack, and she talked about the harrowing
, last month. as you know, heavily armed militants stormed the compound on september 11th. chris stevens and three other americans were killed. security at the embassy was modest at best. just a short time ago, this evening, secretary of state hillary clinton traveling in peru said the buck stops with her and she takes the blame for the assault. >> i take responsibility. i'm in charge of the state department, 60,000 plus people all over the world, 275 posts. the president and the vice president certainly wouldn't be knowledgeable about specific decisions that are made by security professionals. they're the ones who weigh all of the threats and the risks and the needs and make a considered decision. >> her statement comes hours before the second presidential debate. i want to bring in elise who had that interview. this is the first time secretary clinton talked about that night in depth. what else did she tell you? >> anderson, you're right. it's the first time she talked about the attack and she talked about the harrowing night she and owe state department officials, the long many hour o
to libya, christopher stevens. we know who he is. we know where he is, who's got him and whether american interrogators will be able to get at him. in addition tonight, we've got new insight into just how quickly the state department knew about the military sophistication of the actual assault. frank townsend will join us shortly. along with former cia officer bob baer. and you'll hear as well from senator john mccain. i want to start with the suspect and a "360" exclusive. earlier reporting said access to the suspect was being blocked. intelligence correspondent suzanne kelly has learned otherwise. she joins us now. what have you heard? >> right, anderson. what we're hearing from a u.s. government official that the u.s. does fully intend and expect to get access to this individual. there's a little bit of negotiating going on. there's a process in place. the fbi is expected to take the lead on this negotiation, though intelligence officials are also expected to be in the room when he's questioned. >> so it's not clear -- so fbi will take the lead on interrogation or interviews, and cia,
, christopher stevens. we know who he is, where he is, who has him and whether american interrogators are able to get at him. new insight into how quickly the state department knew about the military sophistication of the military assault. frank townsend will join us shortly. bob b enair and john mccain wil join us as well. but i want to start with, intelligence correspondent suzanne kelly. >> >> the fbi is expected to take the lead on this investigation. >> so, it is not clear. fbi will take the lead on interviews and cia. others will be there? >> that is what was expected. it's not clear that the cia will take the lead and other intelligence will be there? >> that's what we understand you understand what this looks like with law enforcement. but we are told that right now the fbi is told to take the lead. they would be able to uphold in court but that the intelligence agency will be there as well. they want to know how many other people they can lik nk to the attack in benghazi. >> so, his name is ali alhazri. we know that he was posting details of the attack as it was happening on his socia
consulate in benghazi, libya on september 11th. u.s. ambassador christopher stevens, three other americans were killed. you know that. at the time of the attack, a backlash was building over an anti-muslim video in other parts of the world. various officials in the obama administration initially said a protest outside the consulate had turned violent. tonight, though, on the eve of a congressional hearing about the security situation in benghazi, prior to the attack, a new narrative is emerging from the state department. jill dougherty joins me now. so jill, there is a question about whether there were protests outside the consulate. the state department is now saying tonight there was nothing out of the ordinary, that all was quiet before the attack took place. there was no protest. that contradicts what we've heard from other corners of the administration, even days after the attack. how can that be? >> well, anderson, you know, they did not specifically say there were no protests. i just checked what one of those officials said, and he said you would have to ask others about that, but t
were dead, including u.s. ambassador christopher stevens, top white house officials were in frequent contact with senior intelligence officials, multiple conversations and possibly we're told tonight at least one secure video conference involving the cia director, david petraeus, the white house national security advisor and perhaps the secretary of state, hillary clinton. now, we don't know yet what was said or whether those discussions covered raw intelligence from libya pointing to terrorist involvement. we have been reporting such early indications existed, and tonight, the associated press says some of it was coming from the cia station chief on the ground. whether or how it was distributed, we just don't know yet. late today, though, mike rogers, the republican chairman of the house intelligence committee, had this to say to cnn's wolf blitzer. >> i want to say we, the committee, were in possession of information that provided by the intelligence community that pretty much said this was a military style attack within less than 24 hours. >> are you sure -- >> presumably, the whi
stevens. what do you make of the pictures you see of what arwa's talking about? >> as i listen to arwa, it just reinforces what we said last week and we've said from the beginning. investigators have to go there, even if you didn't have all the physical evidence there that arwa just described to our viewers, you would want to know from the witness interviews, anderson, you would want to know measurements, you would want to be able to take people through it to really understand what the dynamic was. but then you see things like handprints and blood samples. one of the things, the first thing you would do, i'll give you an example, that is you would take the blood sample off the toilet and the bidet and see whether or not it matched first to the ambassador's. did he fall? there's all sorts of things you would want to know. you know, the pictures we've seen publicly of his body doesn't look like he did, but you don't know. and all those sorts of bits of information, it is true, it would be a less valuable crime scene now because people have rifled through it, but there's always some value
stevens. obviously mrs. smith is upset. what is the procedure though for keeping a family informed. she said we will let you know what happened? you would think somebody would be in contact with her. >> there is an office in the justice department. the office of victim witness assistance. they are supposed to be the advocates, to get updates, to make sure the families are kept apprised. but you also expect and every department has this. if it is a member of our law enforcement or intelligence service that is agency makes sure to shepherd the person around the system. it is sort of incomprehensible to me these are people, the family members were identified and met with senior officials and it is not as though they don't know where she is. >> initially i thought maybe they were in contact with sean smith's wife who is i guess in the netherlands? >> that is right. with a family that has lost someone, there is more than one person. there is the family and you may have the spouse. and it becomes the government' s responsibility to keep the family in formed. >> you reached out to the state de
stevens. obviously mrs. smith is upset. you know, it's very understandable why she would be. what is the procedure though for keeping a family informed? she said we will let you know what happened? do they wait until the investigation is over? you would think somebody would be in contact with them. >> there is an office in the justice department. because this is now a criminal investigation, they responsible -- the office of victim/witness assistance. they are supposed to be the advocates inside the apparatus of the u.s. government to get updates, to make sure the families are kept apprised. but you also expect and every department has this. if it's an employee lost, or a member of one of our law enforcement or intelligence service, that agency takes ownership of making sure to shepherd the person through the system and around the system. in many respects, it's sort of incomprehensible to me. these are people -- the family members were identified. they met with senior officials, and it is not as though they don't know where she is. >> initially i thought maybe they were in contact
to talk openly about what happen to ambassador stevens, reminding people, there is still no government in libya, still no security in libya, al qaeda entities, al qaeda affiliated entities are moving freely in libya, in fact, they are the most armed people in the country, and it raises the question, what did this war accomplish? and i think most people. most people view a show like this, a very news savvy audience don't know isn't a government in libya. >> that's not entirely true, david. there were elections, muslim fundamentalists lost badly. a moderate liberal pro western government was nominated. the institutions of government are not very strong in libya, but to categorize it as there being no government misses a very important election that took place and many conservatives lauded it because it brought to power moderate pro western liberals. >> what did we get? that's the debate the administration doesn't want to have this month and that's the debate driven home by the events in benghazi. and that is why the administration is so keen to make this a story about a spontaneous react

stevens and the three other americans died as a result of a terrorist attack. >> certainly on that particular question, i would say yes. they were killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our embassy. >> two days later, secretary of state clinton made it even plainer. >> what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack and we will not rest until we have tracked down and brought to justice the terrorists who murdered four americans. >> keeping them honest, if the white house wants credit for quickly labeling what happened in benghazi an act of terror, can't also claim credit for prudently not calling it terrorism for so many days. whatever you think, clearly these are two candidates with some big questions to face and perhaps, they will less than 48 hours from now. that debate, a lot to talk about for us. the polls, debates, big economic numbers coming out this week. joining us, ari fleischer, serving as an unpaid occasional campaign advisor to the romney campaign. also, robert reish, former labor secretary in the clinton administration, economist and professor of publi
